Config file

The client uses the --home option to point to a directory, by default will check in order: $RDAP_HOME, ./.rdap, ~/.rdap, ~/.config/rdap

The directory should have a config.yaml file in it, defaults shown below.

  # URL to bootstrap the initial request off
  # boolean to use data from bootstrap_data_url instead of a bootstrap server
  self_bootstrap: False
  # url to load bootstrap data from
  bootstrap_data_url: ""
  # length of time in hours to keep bootstrap data
  bootstrap_cache_ttl: 25
  # how to format the output
  output_format: yaml
  # API key for use at
  lacnic_apikey: None
  # role types to recursively query when processing
  recurse_roles: ["administrative", "technical"]
  # HTTP request timeout in seconds, used for both connect and read
